A Fabled Land: The Story of Canterbury’s Famous Mesopotamia Station
By Bruce Ansley with Peter Bush

The legendary Mesopotamia Station lies in the enchanting Rangitata high country, hard against the Southern Alps.

In this epic country the mountains have as much personality as the station's long-time owners, the Prouting family. The Rangitata River flows like a "rogue throughout.

This is a man's country, where the women who wish to stay have to hold their own; a country where the past is echoed in the present. Bruce Ansley gives a vivid portrait of the Prouting family and others who are drawn to this special place, where 150 years of station life have been played out within the great amphitheatre of the mountains.

The photographs taken by legendary rugby photographer Peter Bush -`Bushy' - over a forty year period, beautifully capture the great musters of days gone by, the majestic country, and the distinctive characters who've been part of the Mesopotamia story.
